Victoria Dock, the first dock built east of the River Hull, opened in July 1850. The Earle Brothers shipyard was built on Victoria Dock in 1851, where they launched their first ship, "Dido," in 1853. They continued to launch ships from their yard until it closed in 1931. Victoria Dock ceased operation in 1970 and remained unused until 1987 when Hull City Council purchased it. Bellway began the development of Victoria Dock Village in 1988, which included laying the groundwork.
